Nuevo Arenal, Province of Alajuela
Gated and Private. Meticulously maintained 65+ acre private retreat with flowers and wildlife too numerous to mention. Over 3 miles of private hiking trails, many leading to fantastic vistas of the surrounding mountains, volcano and lake.

Our Blue Butterfly Cottage is aptly named for the common sighting of the Blue Morpho Butterfly around our property.The Cottage is approximately 500 square feet with a full kitchen, small dining area inside or outside on your private veranda, full bathroom w/shower, full living room and sleeping loft with a full/queen bed and a full size sleep sofa in the living area. The cottage is ideal for 1-4 persons looking for a private and tranquil setting to serve as a base for exploring the area or simply wanting to get away from it all.
